Media Can't Believe The IOC Blows Off Obama UPDATE: Newsweek Writer Says This Defeat Is Good For Obama

First, some snark from Jonah Goldberg

Coming soon from Maureen Dowd: "IOC to Obama: No Olympics for you, boy!"

Now, CNN's coverage of Obama's Epic FAIL.

From Townhall via Hot Air

I tried to post something below the fold but for some reason it won't let me, so CNN will have to do.

You can see the WGN video here.

UPDATE: Thank God Chicago lost, it's the best thing for Obama.

This is pretty embarrassing for the White House. (Especially letting Obama having to fail in front of his wifeóouch!) But ultimately, itís a good thing for him. As I wrote on Monday, the Olympics are notorious for running massively over budget. The organizing committees are always rife with infighting and power games as all manner of colorful cronies badger members to get their paws on some of those coveted Olympics dollars. Public support for the Olympics in Chicago itself was already lukewarm. Residents would have been facing seven years of disruptive construction and roadwork as their city raced to prepare itself. Itís a recipe for serious disgruntlement.

A video representation of this opinion here.

In other news, we've always been at war with Eastasia.
